Powder Highlighters

Mostly raves–I love a great highlighter! They’re a definite weakness. I don’t like when they’re really, really pigmented and metallic, though, as I tend to personally opt for more medium-level highlighters that are buildable.

Blotting Powders

Since I have normal-to-dry skin, I don’t like if they highlight dryness, and I tend to prefer lighter-weight options since I don’t need a lot of oil control/absorption!

Frost Lipsticks

I love a shimmery lipstick! I really do! However, when it gets to be too frosted–where it is a bit lighter and almost metallic–it can emphasize lip lines or have issues where the shimmer travels, neither of which I’m a fan of.

Lip Balms

Lip balms that FEEL great going on but wear away in an hour two are really frustrating, as are ones that feel hydrating as long as they last but don’t seem to improve lips for the long-term. I love when they are smooth, lightweight, and wear a good amount of time.

Hair Dryers

My biggest rant is any dryer where my long hair gets pulled into the back of the dryer, because OW OW OW! I don’t like when they’re super loud (most are much quieter these days). The technology has come a long way, so they dry hair faster than ever, and I’m a huge fan of saving time!
